(Honolulu) –Starting on Monday April 8, 2019 and until further notice, the Department of Land and Natural Resources State Historic Preservation Division (SHPD) will institute “I Mua  Mondays”. On all Monday’s SHPD offices statewide will be closed to the public and SHPD will not accept meetings, phone calls, emails or “walk-ins”. SHPD’s Library will also be closed on “I Mua Mondays.” 

Electronic submissions of reports, plans and permit applications will still be accepted through SHPD’s digital submission portal: DLNR.Intake.SHPD@hawaii.gov

SHPD staff will return voice messages and respond to email in the order received during regular businesses hours Tuesday through Friday.
